Symposium Appendix: Analysis of Scholarly Impact of Doctoral Dissertation Program Grantees

As with the articles in this issue, this introduction reflects the views of the authors and does not necessarily reflect the views of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.


The Doctoral Dissertation Research Grant Program at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) enables doctoral candidates enrolled at institutions of higher education to complete and improve the quality of their dissertations on policy-relevant housing and urban development issues. HUD has issued more than 250 dissertation grants since 1994. The Department expected that these grants would have a direct effect on scholarship and policy and an indirect effect through ensuring the existence of a qualified cadre of researchers and analysts to inform this nation’s efforts to improve its housing and its neighborhoods. Recipients of the grants and titles of their dissertations are listed in this appendix.
